Fmr Trump Advisor Knocks President’s Decision

H.R. McMaster, President Trump’s former national security adviser, called the president’s plan to withdraw troops from Afghanistan “unwise” in an interview scheduled to air Sunday.

The retired lieutenant general told CBS’s “60 Minutes” that Trump’s negotiations with the Taliban and the plan to withdraw troops has made the U.S. less safe.

“Well I think what he did with this new policy is he in effect is partnering with the Taliban against, in many ways, the Afghan government,” McMaster told CBS’s Scott Pelley in a portion of the interview released by the network Thursday. 

“So I think that it’s an unwise policy, and I think what we require in Afghanistan is a sustained commitment to help the Afghan government and help the Afghan security forces to continue to bear the brunt of this fight,” he added.

I served 30 years as a senior NCO under many C-in-C’s! The Dems from Clinton on had no use for the military and turned many of the Senior officers into puppets. McMaster is another Big Brass sellout to the troops on the ground, His President, and the whole Country . Since Clinton, senior military officers became active players in Politics and political correctness. The problem was they needed “enemies” to fight and ultimately promoted, and stay significant after they’d retired. Once the Democrats got in bed with the Chinese & Russians, the military bosses had to find new wars, but they had to fight them like the Dems did in Cuba and Vietnam- half-assed !! Now guys like McMasters are the frontmen for the ones they promoted to take their place, even to the extent of selling out the President & the Country.

I really don’t think Presidents need to be taking advice from “Former” advisors. There are reasons why they are “Former”
